A Scalar Model in the Half-Space

  • Andrea Aspri
Part of the Lecture Notes in Geosystems Mathematics and Computing book series (LNGMC)


The aim of this chapter is to provide a detailed mathematical study of a simplified scalar version of the elastic problem presented in Chap. 1. Since this problem is easier than the elastic case it will be studied in the generic framework of a d-dimensional space, with d ≥ 3.
